From June 18th-21st, 2019, ReFresh: Ready for College? is back for its third year at the Zacharias Institute.
‘I’m lost. I’ve gone to find myself. If I should turn up while I’m out, tell myself to wait here”. These words, written on a sign in a bookstore in downtown Atlanta, capture the feeling of displacement that high school and college students across America are struggling with today. We don’t know who we are anymore. In a world swept up in identity politics, our own identities, both as individuals and as Christians, can feel less secure than ever.
This summer, at our annual ReFresh: Ready for College? conference, we will be addressing the question that Jesus himself once asked His disciples: “Who do you say that I am?” This was the most important question that the disciples had to answer, and our response to this same question remains just as critical for our own lives. Truth, justice, morality, sexuality, freedom, meaning, love, identity: everything that we care about, everything that we live for, all of these are grounded by the answer to that one question. To know Him is to know ourselves. Only when we are confident of who He is can we be sure of who we are, and what He has called us to.
So if you’re a junior or senior in high school, or a college freshman, then don’t miss the opportunity this coming June to get time away with each other, with members of the RZIM speaking team, and most importantly of all, with God.
— Daily worship, prayer, and Bible teaching
— Apologetics talks dealing with today’s biggest challenges to Christianity
— Over five hours of Q&A (No question is off limits!)
— Breakout discussion groups lead by the RZIM speaking team
